Common Mistakes in Trail Running

 

New to Trail Running

Scott Jurek, 7-Time Western State 100 winner, shares his expertise. If you’re new to trail running, avoid these two most common mistakes:

1. Being too tense and tight
Your body is rigid, you are less able to absorb shock and subsequently more prone to spraining an ankle or injury.

2. Over striding
Your body is less able to respond to the rocks and roots when your stride is too long. Your normal road running stride will not be as beneficial on the trails.

Overcome Common Trail Mistakes

Start on less tactical trails and get used to the uneven terrain. Gain confidence in your footing and remain loose.

Shorten your stride and take smaller steps. If you think your stride is too short, you might be at just right.
